QinetiQ has announced it is increasing its graduate intake for 2013 as part of its commitment to “inspiring a generation” of engineers, scientists and technologists.
The defence and technology company is increasing its graduate intake from 60 to 75, providing encouragement to graduates during a time of uncertainty in the job market.
“We want to find the best graduate talent out there,” says QinetiQ Group HR director Dave Bradley. “It’s a time of uncertainty for graduates and under 25s and we want to show our commitment to those who have worked hard and are keen on a bright future that can really make a difference. The UK has always been a centre for innovation and QinetiQ is playing a key role in maintaining this. We aim to recruit those graduates who want to contribute to this ongoing legacy."
QinetiQ’s long-established graduate programme provides applicants with a structured two year programme that helps provide them with the skills to become future business leaders. They are given the opportunity to develop their professional skills via mentoring schemes and professional qualifications.
QinetiQ is also increasing its apprenticeship programme, boosting its apprentice intake by 75 for next year.
